Pentax K-5, "K-3 type" Split Focusing screen.

Looking to sell the following items:

PRICES LOWERED

Pentax K-5 Body
$220 AUD
Shipping: $15 (local)

- Good condition with minimal marks (Some minor scuffs on bottom left corner of LCD cover. Does not affect image viewing as scratches are below image display area)
- Includes original box and all accessories
- Has intermittent fault where image sensor platform gets "stuck" and SR systems does not position sensor accurately. Happens if camera has been lying around unused for a long time. Correct operation can be quickly verified by using live view when turning on camera. Easily fixed by gentle shake of camera to dislodge sensor platform, whereupon the fault may not occur again for days. Minor issues which I did not bother to have repaired as it occurs rarely and can be quickly fixed. As such camera is fully functional if you note to check and correct for this issue if camera has been idle for a number of days.

Pentax K-5 “K-3 Focusing screen” from Focusing Screen
$70 AUD
Shipping: $5 (local)

- Mint condition
- Option without markings as per “Focusing Screen

Afternoon.

Look whats the shutter count on that K5?

I'm interested, but concerned about the sensor shifting fault. Does it spit an error code on screen when it fails? I only really shoot of a weekend, will I have to be turning it on via live view every time I want to use it? I'm just scared. Tell me it will be ok.

Hi there, the shutter count is 22,553. The sensor shift fault happens rarely and usually only after prolonged storage. If it does occur, once you give the camera a gentle shake it will be fine and then wont show up during a shoot. There is no error code but it is a rare problem which is was not annoying enough for me to have fixed. PM me and make an offer. Thanks

Weird little problem it's got. So no error code, so how can you confirm it's not stuck? Is it a matter of shooting below 1/30 and looking at the results? I've never been able to hear the SR system at work, nor see it.

If you enable live view you can quickly check if it is fine. You can also just gently shake the camera when it is off to hear the sensor moving as with any SR pentax camera. I would consider this issue to be rare and with minor consequences, but wanted to mention it in case it occurs again.
